Algona Hi Leads Loop; Beat Webster City & Humboldt Brief Scuffle ~ Empties Both Benches, W-C Algona's Bulldogs put together their finest all-around perform ince of the young season Satur day night and vaulted to the tor of the North Central Conferenr- standings with a surprising 65-51 victory at Webster City. The Jos'- was the first of the season for thr Lynx. The Bulldogs will travel tr Hampton for another loop fra^ this Friday night. Hampton posted a wirt over Humboldt Saturdav night and is 2-1 in the conference good for a second place tie in the standings, so far this season. One change in the Algona schcd ule was announced this week. Thr Bulldogs were slated to host Clear Lake here next Tuesday night, however, a conflict made it necessary to cancel that game and the Bulldogs are slated to travel to Clear Lake Friday night, Dec. 21. Clear Lake will play the return game here Feb. 8, 1963. A small following of loyal Bulldog fans saw the exciting upset at Webster City Saturday night. And the ones that weren't there really missed something. The teams were very evenly matched. With four minutes of the first period gone, an 8-8 deadlock existed. Webster City then managed to take a one-point edge, but by the end of the stanza, the Bulldogs, led by Sig Wood and Bill Wetzel, swung into a 15-12 lead. Play became more intense during the second period. The ability of Algona's guards, Dick Pratt and Tom Waller, and the forwards, Wetzel, Maynard Shackelford and Brian Espe, to move the ball up court despite Webster City's tight man-for-man defense paid off with points time after time and allowed Algona to keep the lead to intermission time. Algona Leads At Half Algona held the upper hand, 2617, with four minutes gone in the quarter and finished the half with a 34-28 lead, fashioned on the scoring of Wood and Wetzel and thfe pin-point passing-of Pratt and Waller. Wood finished the half with 18 points — and 12 of them came during second quarter action. The Lynx closed the gap tc three points midway through the third period, but the Bulldogs rallied, and zipped to a 47-38 bulge at the three-quarter mark. Wood picked up a pair of fouls early after the half, running his total to four and he sat out much of the action. Wood fouled out early in the fourth quarter. The remaining five, Wetzel, Shackelford, Espe Pratt and Waller, had more than enough fuel left to win going away. Wetzel capped a fine night of scoring with eight last quarter points as the Bulldogs hit five of six field goal attempts during tlici dight minutes. Tempers Flare A scuffle developed after Shackelford stole the ball from Webster City during the final minutes, but all was serene again moments later when tempers tapered off Several players from each team squared off, but nothing developed and Shackelford, awarded a free throw, netted it to help the locals IJUMI tne final margin to 14 points. \Vetzel wound up as Afguna's top point producer with 19. Woof 1 finished with 18, all in the first half, and Espe counted 11. Waller and Pratt, with seven and six points. The four taller boys, Wetzel, Wood, Espe and Shackelford. all did a good job of rebounding- and most of Wood's first-half baskets came as tip-ins or follow- shots.

The win was the fifth without a defeat for Coach Keith Christie's team, which trailed until late in the game. Gary Naylor topped tht locals in scoring with 16 points. The win by the varsity was the fourth in five starts this season— and the four wins have followed an opening game loss to Emmetsburg. Algona's varsity and B-tearr squad had a little trouble getting on the bus for the ride home from Webster City when a group of older-than-high-school boys from Webster City (probably the sanu ones that threw tomatoes following Algona's football win over Webster City last fall) attempted lo keep them from the bus. Schoo'. officials chased the would-ba delinquents away, then called police tr the scene to keep order. Therr was no trouble after that. • • • Second Half Rush Belts Humboldt A standing-room-only crowd saw the eager Bulldogs recover frorr an early lethargy to belt Humboldt's hopeful Wildcats, 61-44, ir a loop contest here Friday night The victory was third straight for the Bulldogs after an opening game loss to Emmetsburg's unbeaten E-Hawks, and pushed the locals to a 2-0 conference record. Humboldt took an early lead, but free throws allowed Algona to hold a slim lead until the visitors poked home a bucket before the buzzer to take a 13-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. At this point, il appeared the Bulldogs were in for trouble — and maybe a long night. Four minutes into the second quarter, it was apparent the teams were going to wind up with a final score of 39-37 — and you could have taken your pick as to the winner. From that time on, however, the Bulldogs took over and left no doubt as to the eventual victor. The score was tied at 16-16 when Algona really went lo work. Maynard Shackelford, who was never better, and Sig Wood suddenly began grabbing rebounds all over the place, and when combined with own scoring and that of Tom Waller, slammed the Bulldogs into a rather comfortable 29-21 halftime lead. The onslaught continued into the third round — and the Bulldogs completely demolished Humboldt's hopes. Bill Wetzel, Wood and Dick Pratt flipped in buckets and free tosses and all of the Bulldogs turned in a fine defensive effort (holding Humboldt to a mere fivo points in eight minutes) as the lead went to 52-26 at the three quarter mark. Coach Howie Stcphcnson got a chance to empty the Algona bench earlier than any coach in recent history early in the fourth period —and the resulting scramble after the count reached 56-26 allowed the losers to close the gap before the final buzzer. Twelve players saw action for Algona. The final collapse was so great that Anderson, who didn't count a point during the first three periods, came on to top the Wildcats in scoring with nine points. Algona's E for Effort boys wen- led by Wood, who canned 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, the same total snatched by Shackelford. Wetzel got 15 points and eight rebounds, Pratt nine points. Shackelford eight points, Waller seven points, seven rebounds and four interceptions of Humboldt passes, and Brian Espe, held to two points, picked up six rebounds and a pair of interceptions. The crowd was so large thai Webster City's scouts, here to look at the Bulldogs in preparation for a meeting of the Lynx and Algona the next night, had to stand up Box score: Algona «!l) FO FT F Wetzel 5 5-8 0 Espe l o-4 3 Wood 6 6-6 5 Pratt 4 1-2 3 Waller 3 1-2 3 Shackelford 3 2-5 4 Hardy 0 0-0 2 Parsons 0 0-2 0 Naylor 0 0-0 3 Sundet 1 0-0 1 23 15-29 24 IhimbolrU (M) FG FT F Bareness 3 1 5 Morris 0 4-7 1 Helvick 3 1-2 3 Arcnds 3 1-1 2 Anderson 2 5-11 3 Fish 1 2-7 3 Crist 1 0-0 1 Terwilliger 0 2-2 0 Williams 0 0-1 3 Schobcrlein 1 0-0 1 14 16-32 22 The loss gave the Wildcats an even split in appearances here. Humboldt downed Garrigan, 62-44, in the Bears' season opener. Algona's B-team got off to a hot start and went on to post a 57-34 victory in the curtain-raiser. Coach Keith Christie's club thus got its fourth win without a loss. Bruce Sundet got 16 points and Gary Naylor 11 to lead the Bull- pups. Lakota Boys Romp Over Woden-Cr.

The Lakota lassies lost a close one in overtime by a 38-37 score. The boys won easily with a thunderous 89-15 victory. With 20 seconds left in the overtime period Sheryl Lindberg hit a charity toss to give the Woden- Crystal Lake girls a 38-37 win. Lindberg led the winners with 21 points. Rippentrop had 23 for Lakota. ' The Lakota boys had four cag- ers in double figures in their 89-15 romp. Leading in pack was Charold Barrett hitting 16 points.
